Trevor was playing doctor with his cousins and he accidentally pierced her ear.
His mother and grandmother got really mad at Trevor. Yet only his mother was willing to beat Trevor because he is part white.
Since he is a mixed color people would use him as a landmark. Like in the story there were people who used him as a landmark. The house on Makhalima Street. At the corner, you’ll see a light-skinned boy. Take a right there.”
Trevor liked to compare peoples skin color to flavors of chocolate. Trevor thought of his parents as White and Dark chocolate. While he likes to think of himself as Milk chocolate.
Trevor spoke many languages because of his situation as a mixed race in Apartheid. That is why his mother made sure that he spoke English first.
Trevor went to multiple different schools and he tried to make the most of why there was such a racial divide in the school systems.
